Sorry for the unnecessary rant, med student nearing exams lol :/
Just an hint for the future: ACt already graduated from Medicine, so if he made the comment, he knows damn well why.

And even I can tell why he did it, since I had to study metabolism: ACTH, ADH, LH, FSH, TSH, beta-endorphin, prolactin and oxytocin are also pituitary hormones and their over-estimulation would have different results.

But yes, the hormone in question must be GH, but I don't know who goofed up, the translators or Oda himself.
